Ronit Raphael, the internationally renowned businesswoman whose company has become a world leader in skincare, aesthetics and anti-aging treatments, was presented with the Jerusalem Post Award in absentia at the Jerusalem Post London Conference last week for her accomplishments in the fields of beauty, wellness and philanthropy.
Raphael’s interest in skincare came from her personal experience. At the age of 18, she underwent skincare treatment, which caused much physical and mental anguish until she discovered a medical solution to her difficulties.

In retrospect, the defective treatment was one of the defining events of her life, which led to being dedicated to the world of aesthetics, wellness and beauty treatments, Raphael said.
“My life’s mission is to create advanced solutions and help millions of people worldwide feel and look better and strengthen self-confidence at any age,” she said
Raphael, who was unable to be present at the conference, issued prepared remarks on her social and philanthropic activities, which have been directed against the sexual abuse of children. For more than a decade, she has been active in combating the sexual abuse of children.
Raphael established the Global Army against Child Abuse to raise awareness of the issue in Israel and around the world. More than 200 million children around the world under 18 are sexually abused, Raphael said. “This is an inconceivable and shocking figure,” she said.
“I call on the Israeli government to be the first government to deal with rape and child abuse and treat the issue as a contagious and dangerous epidemic,” Raphael wrote.
